Kerri Green Wiki: Early Life and Education
Of course you want to learn more about Kerri, from her birth to her most recent endeavors, so stay with us and we will share all there is to know about Kerri with you. Kerri Lee Green was born on the 14th January 1967, in Fort Lee, New Jersey USA, but spent her childhood in Woodcliff Lake. From an early age Kerri was interested in acting, and once she hit Pascack Hills High School, she started attending drama classes. Following her matriculation, Kerri broke into acting, postponing her further education, but enrolled at Vassar College in 1994, where she studied art. During her college years, she roomed with Ken Levine, the developer of the highly popular video game series “BioShock”, and with Marisa Tomei’s brother Adam.
Career Beginnings and Rise to Prominence
It was in 1984 that Kerri made the choice that acting would become her profession; instead of attending summer camp like the rest of her friends, she opted out for an audition. Steven Spielberg himself saw her at the audition for “The Goonies”, and gave her the role of Andy, a cheerleader turned adventurer. The film became a complete success, launching Kerri and her co-stars Sean Astin, Corey Feldman and Jeff Cohen to stardom.
After her successful debut, Kerri continued with further success through the late ‘80s, first starring in the comedy film “Summer Rental” in 1985, next to John Candy and Richard Crenna, while in 1986 she was Maggie in the romantic comedy film “Lucas”, co-starring Corey Haim and Charlie Sheen. Kerri became rather popular with teenage girls, thanks to her portrayals of carefree-adventurous type, however, the next film – “Three for the Road” – wasn’t as well-received as her other projects, and Kerri then decided to focus more on her education, rather than becoming dependent on the success of films in which she appeared.

She graduated with Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Vassar College, and then returned full-time to the entertainment industry, but this time focused on working behind the scenes, starting her own filmmaking company named Independent Women Artists.
She produced, wrote and directed one film under her company, entitled “Bellyfruit” in 1999, starring Tamara LaSeon Bass, Tonatzin Mondragon and Kelly Vint Castro, but also returned to acting with the start of the 2000s, in a minor role in the crime-drama series “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” in 2001, and the role of Beth Wilkensen in the film “Complacent” in 2010, but without notable success, and so decided to retire permanently from acting.
